I teach a number of economics courses between Portland Community College and Portland State University. I teach face-to-face courses and online. In March I was asked by the distance learning department at Portland Community College to put my Principles of Microeconomics up for a Quality Matters (QM) Review.
A QM Review is a rigorous process that evaluates online courses in 8 key areas.
- Course Overview and Introduction
- Learning Objectives (Competencies)
- Assessment and Measurement
- Instructional Materials
- Course Activities and Learner Interaction
- Course Technology
- Learner Support
- Accessibility and Usability
In June, my Principles of Microeconomics course (EC 201) passed the QM Review process with 95 points out of 95 points! I am proud that my course scored so well. It is now listed on the QM website as a QM Recognized Course.
My goal is to have all my courses QM reviewed and certified in the next year.
